Adaptive Reuse and Renovation: A Learning Center, Huntley Meadows Park And The Huntley Villa
In doing research for the documentation of the Huntley Meadows Plantation for public record at the Library of Congress and assessing a possible use for this site for the Friends of Huntley, i saw a humble little piece of Virginian history decaying and being swept away by sprawling development. Sufficient research of historical American architecture is important to determine whether it has cultural or architectural significance.
This thesis does not provide a solution to this problem of preserving architecture. It is a case study for preserving and reactivating Huntley Meadows Plantation and Huntley Meadows Park through adaptive reuse and renovation.
